EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – The Giants today signed quarterback Jake Fromm off the Buffalo Bills' practice squad.
Fromm, 6-2 and 215 pounds, has no NFL regular-season experience but was a prolific passer at the University of Georgia.
The Bills selected Fromm in the fifth round of the 2020 NFL Draft, No. 167 overall. As a rookie, Fromm was inactive for all 19 regular-season and postseason games for a Buffalo team that advanced to the AFC Championship Game.
In the 2021 preseason, Fromm completed 21 of 36 passes (58.3%) for 172 yards. He was released on Aug. 31 and signed to the Bills' practice squad the following day.
Fromm played in 43 games for Georgia from 2017-19. He entered the first game of his freshman season as a reserve, led the team to a victory against Appalachian State, and went 35-7 as a starter in the next 42 games.
As a freshman in 2017, Fromm led the Bulldogs to the 2017 CFP national championship game, where they lost to Alabama in overtime. He also quarterbacked Georgia to three consecutive SEC championship games (winning once). Under Fromm, the Bulldogs won a Rose Bowl and were 1-1 in the Sugar Bowl.
In three seasons, Fromm completed 621 of 982 passes (63.2%) for 8,224 yards, 78 touchdowns and 18 interceptions. Fromm also rushed for 402 yards and scored three touchdowns on 134 carries.
